New apartment homes designed to meet Passive House standards


Inclusionary Housing

~236 Parking Spaces

~250k Residential Sq Ft

528 Boylston's original proposal included 244 units and 385 parking spaces. Since then, we have conducted several town meetings and heard feedback that prompted us to redesign the building three times. Our current proposal has shrunk the building approximately 152k square feet, reduced the unit count to 184, and limited on-site parking to 236.

The Vision

528 Boylston is a proposed redevelopment of an existing landscape & construction yard into a vibrant new apartment community, which will address the significant housing shortfall as well as provide significant levels of affordable housing for the city of Newton.

We envision the project to provide hardworking citizens of the commonwealth with the housing they desperately need and deserve- a project that adds, not subtracts to the livelihoods of Newton's residents.

528 Boylston will be a safe place called home for many- where they can live, work, play, and enjoy what Newton has to offer.

The Opportunity

Massachusetts currently suffers from a severe housing shortage. Over the past 30 years, the Boston metro area has only provided 0.2 new homes for every new job added.

528 Boylston has the potential to transform an underutilized industrial site on Rt. 9 into a community oriented development.

As currently proposed the community will create ~184 new households, ~46 units offered at varying affordability levels between 50-80% of the Area's Median Income. Newton has the opportunity to invite new neighbors to their community and move together into a prosperous future.
